When I try to OPEN the BrooDat.Mpq it loads... and when it reaches 100% it appears the "Run-time error 6 Overflow" and WinMPQ closes. BTW I have Windows XP Proffesional Edition and installed all the requiered files.

I get the exact same error with Patch.mpq for World Of Warcraft. All of the other mpq files work. Size issue maybe? It seems files over 1GB won't load. Guess I should try a command-line extraction?

[edit]
I found this in the readme file.
"The FileLimit parameter has a minimum value of 16, and a maximum value of 262144."
I believe, in my case at least, that the cumulative Patch.mpq file for WoW has more files than that since it has been getting updated semi-frequently since launch in Oct./Nov. '04.

So, umm, is there a solution for this? Anyone know a workaround or is this a VB4 Limitation?

Yes, there is a work-around.  You need to download Blizzard's own Interface Customization Tool:

http://ftp.blizzard.com/pub/WoW/other/CustomInterfaceKit.zip

Your Program Files/WoW/Interface directory must be empy in order to execute this program, so you might have to temporarily move any custom UI files to another folder whole the files are being extracted. Happy modding!

I get the same error when trying to open any MPQ archive (StarCraft). It just started recently. I tried reinstalling EVERYTHING, runtime files, MPQ control, WinMPQ (I tried new and old versions).
